Hi Pamela,thanks so much for the pictures they are gorgeous! The scalloped frog thats on top of the gnomes frog may have solved a bit of a mystery for myself and a fellow collector! I will email them and ask permission to upload a picture of the 3 piece set they have in amber(have a feeling the scalloped frog goes on top of the central insert thay have). Watch this space!  Ps glad the "Dorothy" senario was cleared up! I have a very cutting and witty sense of humour-hence why most of my friends have been reduced to tears with my sharp tongue haha!!!!

traced RĂ¼diger's first photos of 2007 on my main board and think they are worth to get uploaded:

Hi Pamela here is a picture that I was sent which shows the main bowl,gnomes frog and also the central insert which has the holes for the flowers and a protrudng rock face type structure.we think there maybe would have been something that also fitted on top of that as there is a hole on top? Many thanks

I hope this item will not just drop off the end of the page without an ID. It sure is a wonderful thing,nobody has got back to me about my suggestions for a maker earlier in this topic.I think I like the amber version best. Kay.

Hi everyone again
Just thought I would see if anyone had any more info on this unusual centrepiece?
I wondered if it was European regarding the theme of caverns and elves,I believe there is folklore tale about kobolds down the mines.
I wondered if this bowl was perhaps depicting that tale?
Has anyone a picture of possibly a green version?
Thanks all for your time and input.

Haven't seen this in any catalogues; however, I did once see an opalescent example (just the bowl & insert, no extra frog or other piece) - the opalescence & general feel were very similar to opalescent S. Reich pieces, so Reich would be my best guess for now.....

Hi
Wow! Thats amazing would have loved to have seen it in opalescence! bet it looked amazing! I actually like the thick oplaescence of Reich,I have also wondered if Riedel did oplaescent pieces as I have seen the common lady on rock lamp base in opalescent.
I have at the moment an opalescent Deco lady which has a thick oplaescence and did wonder if she was Reich?
